2018 Chocolate & Cheese Festival

Saturday, March 24, 2018 - 10:00am to 5:00pm
Sunday, March 25, 2018 - 10:00am to 5:00pm
The Natural History Museum of Utah | Rio Tinto Center | 301 Wakara Way, Salt Lake City

We look forward to seeing you this weekend! 

Chocolate and Cheese. Few foods have a history as rich or as complex. When you throw in amazing flavor, you have two of the most beloved tastes in all of history.

Explore everything both have to offer at the Chocolate & Cheese Festival on March 24 and 25. The Museum is hosting the best local producers and purveyors of chocolate and cheese in one of Utah's best food markets for this two-day extravaganza. 

If this is your first time please note that the market is the main event of the festival. The workshops are an incredible extra we offer with the help of our generous partners. Please note NHMU's refund policy here.
